paul uhlmann architects have designed a getaway farmhouse called ‘the barn‘ in an australian suburb that features cathedral-like ceilings and expansive barn door-style openings. the design of the building, clad internally and externally in australian hardwood with a zincalume roof, creates a strong singular rural form that sits like a rural shed in a setting of both farmland and bush.

located in pullenvale, a suburb of brisbane, australia, the site is accessed via a meandering driveway decorated with sprawling jacarandas. paul uhlmann architects has designed the ground floor plan to engage with the sprawling lawn and grounds of the property via a sliding door that runs down one side.

upstairs, the bedrooms are similarly characterized by wooden paneling, curved arched ceilings and large windows that illuminate the space. a large bunkroom with custom designed-bunk beds was designed with children in mind.
